FUN FACTS + MORE FUN
DENT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, located in Winston Salem, North Carolina. We are a hybrid machine: part reuse center, part art lab, part concerned citizens who believe in educational opportunities and learning new skills with old stuff. Some say we’re even part-time! Our core is a group of ‘curious’ individuals who are united in our pursuit of helping the environment and seeing the value in building community and in reusing materials. We come from a variety of backgrounds. We are not afraid to make fun of ourselves and find value in learning from mistakes. Some of us are artistic and others can’t draw a straight line if our lives depended on it. We welcome you to join us in effort to make DENT an active, vital, and resourceful addition to the Winston Salem area.
